Re: New machine problems

I don't use Easel, so I can not explain why it uses the port it does. But PicSender only uses the com port numbers as assigned by Windows. The error you get when trying to home can be found on PicSender's GRBL screen (click the GRBL button). Error 5 is 'Homing cycle is not enabled via settings"...

PicSender price increase

PicSender will increase in price to $34.95 on June 1, 2019. The new version (V3) should be in full release by then. All registered users can still upgrade at no cost.

Re: Beam shape and engraving direction

Orient the beam to a 45 degree angle to the X axis, and engrave at a 45 degree angle for best results.
I prefer to use the 45 degree left angle.

Re: Laser settings for cork board

My apologies, but I have never tried to engrave cork myself, and so I have no clue as to what advise to give you re settings.

Re: learning the ropes... picture size

Tim, Change your setting to match the settings shown below. You must use only positive integer numbers for Max and Min depths for the laser S commands, and the 3rd Axis letter must be an S, not a Z.
